Zero-Shot Translation with Google Neural Machine Translation System

Google announced late last year that it had applied machine learning to its Google translate service, resulting in a neural network capable of “zero-shot” translation. Zero-shot is translating phrases for language pairs where no explicit training or mapping exists. The trained neural network surprised researchers when it evidence of an interlingua emerged as a path for translating previously unpaired languages and phrase. Researchers indicated that data visualizations of the new system in action provided early evidence of shared semantic representations or interlingua between languages. This is presented as evidence of the neural network generating it’s own procedures for more efficient translation all by itself. Google Translate trajectory over the past 10 years is from a few languages to 103 supported languages, translating over 140 billion languages per day. Motivations for…
